SUMMARY STATEMENT:

I am a computer industry entrepreneur specializing in COBOL. I've worked on an exceptional # of projects for many large businesses in the tri-state area including IBM. I've worked on a # of platforms most notably the AS400.

I've had some inactivity lately. This is stated just briefly in the first 2 resume sections. I am very much interested, though, in returning to computer work for a large # of years again. I believe 16 years specificity only on COBOL even with the downtime can get me up to speed quickly. Please consider the extensive client list and nearly 20 COBOL projects layed out on the resume.
